Stuart Holden: Another knee injury for Bolton midfielder

Holden has been plagued by trouble with the same right knee in the past, missing almost two years of football after sustaining a major injury against Manchester United in 2011.

He went down hurt in the 18th minute of the final on Sunday night and was duly substituted by manager Jurgen Klinsmann.

Klinsmann said: "We are very concerned about Stuart's situation.

"It looks like a very serious injury, but I'm not a doctor and I can't confirm it."

The former Germany striker added on ussoccer.com: "We'll get an MRI and he'll have all the tests done. Stu is a player that when something happens, he knows when something happens. Hopefully it's not as bad, but it's not looking good right now."

Holden said on Twitter after the match: "For all that know me and have supported me, I hope you know I will always prevail no matter what the outcome. Fingers crossed. Let's celebrate!"

Stoke's Brek Shea scored the game's only goal in the 69th minute to give the USA the trophy.

I

worry about these types of conclusions on a teams brilliance when it was very clear that Argentina had 4 chances where they really should have scored and on chances alone then it would have been the more pragmatic Argentinians who would be the best in the world. I like the Germany team but this just shows that even with planning it relies on a great deal of luck and finding your opponents at just the right time.

Reward At Last For Years Of Careful Planning

W

e all know the British public don't have the patience to plan for 14 years. No chance. As soon as our young players don't win the world cup they get harrassed and abused to the point of mental breakdown. No, England likes to react to failure by sacking the manager and tearing up their best laid plans in favour of something shiny and new to keep the knee jerkers happy.
